Phi Alpha Theta National History Honor Society
Zeta Nu Chapter

Phi Alpha Theta is the national history honor society. To join, you need to have completed 12 hours of history, have a grade point average of 3.1 in history, and an overall grade point average of 3.0. If you meet these requirements, see the chief undergraduate advisor about becoming a member. Membership entitles you to participate in the organization's activities and receive the academic journal The Historian.

History Club is open to any student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln who is interested in history. Although History Club often meets with Phi Alpha Theta, membership entails no academic requirements or fees. Club events include movie night, meet the professor night (at which faculty members discuss their research), American Civil War re-enactments, and workshops on applying to graduate school.
